thanks for the link 1self.
hope you're not expecting too much from it. most reviews say it doesnt increase the power on fuel injected cars, because the air fuel mix has already taken place before it reaches the throttle body.

but the insulating effect will help a bit methinks. will wait for your review, because parts like this one are going to be available for the DDiS. was planning to experiment.

The maximum a Silicone Rubber Gasket will stand is 250 degree Celsius.

Will this be enough temperature resistance for this application?

It is permanently flexible and stable at temperatures from -80F to 650F (-62C to 343C). It is also highly resistant to oil, water, weather, vibration and grease.
here's the technical datasheet: http://www.ociamericas.com/images/ht_temp_rtv_tds.pdf

This gasket maker costs roughly Rs. 125/- for an 85g tube.

It is ideal for use on exhaust manifolds, timing chain covers and most hi-temp applications.

Shrivz,

In the linky you provided, the hi-temp applivation is for a range of -60 to 343 degrees celcius. Temperatures next to the combustion chamber, even on the intake side will be more i believe.

Default Update: Intake Spacer Installed

Hi Guys!

Just completed installing the Phenolic Intake Spacer. Took the Hyundai A.S.S. guys a total of 3 hrs to install. Quite a labour intensive job!

Went for an all out 2nd gear drive. Drove hard for 15 mins. Then opened the hood...the IM is a little warm, unlike before when one could'nt even touch the damn thing!

Mission is a success!

On the IM, just behind the throttle body.

Slightly improved (Mind you it is already rather good due to the CAI, Sparks, FFE etc). I believe the best improvement in results will come on driving in hot weather & pushing hard.

The results are rather spectacular! My car reaches the rev-cut-off a LOT faster than before. My low low rpm torque is increase by a fair margin. Switching on the A/C has does now slow down the car performance by much...almost as if it were off.

All in all a very much improved performance!

well, if one drives with a light foot, the mileage is actually INCREASED....due to less throttle inputs as compared to previously.
